Accreditation Check:
It is well documented in the limb motor literature that providing the optimal practice and feedback conditions can have positive outcomes for the learning of new movements. The question is whether these training conditions, referred to as the principles of motor learning (PML), are applicable to speech training in healthy adults and the treatment of motor speech disorders (MSDs). The purpose of this presentation is to introduce clinicians to motor learning theory and the PML, as well as explore studies that have investigated the application of these principles to speech training and rehabilitation. Findings from the literature will help guide clinical practice by identifying conditions shown to enhance (re)learning and retention of speech abilities compromised by neurologic disease, as well as promote the transfer of (re)learned skills.

1. Motor Learning

This chapter will provide a brief overview of motor learning theory and introduce principles of motor learning. This information is important for understanding theoretical implications and how to assess and measure learning.

2. Practice Conditions

This chapter will list and define four conditions of practice. We will examine the current state of these practice conditions in the literature and their application to training speech tasks in non-impaired speakers and speakers with MSDs. This is important for understanding the contribution of practice conditions to speech motor learning.

3. Feedback Conditions

This chapter will list and define three feedback conditions. We will examine the current state of these feedback conditions in the literature and their application to training speech tasks in non-impaired speakers and speakers with MSDs. This is important for understanding the contribution of practice conditions to speech motor learning. In addition, a summary of the findings will be reviewed and future directions discussed. This is important for solidifying the information from this talk for learners.
